After working several communication fields, I landed into photography as the perfect way of visual storytelling. From my background in journalism, I put into my work the will to capture the truest and most honest essence of a subject, an event, a person, a moment on the street, and tell their story the best possible way. From my filmmaking studies I incorporate a cinematic aesthetic/mood to my photographs that seeks to bring all the elements in the frame to create evocative images that convey strong stories in the audience's mind.
Growing up, psychology was always a second vocation, and even though it was a path I did not follow, I brought from it a very heightened curiosity towards studying the human spirit, and a natural sense of empathy that proves very useful to connect with my subjects and the work I'm doing. It also helps me "feel" the scene or situation in front of me, to know the best moment when to take the shot, either with someone I'm taking a portrait of, a candid situation in the city, some actors engaged in a scene, or a speaker on a stage.
I offer tailor-made services for whatever photography needs you or your brand/company may have: portfolio images or headshots, individiual, corporate, family and group portraits, weddings and birthdays, events, corporate conferences and parties, entertainment (behind the scenes, still shots, tech rehearsals, concert photography, music band album cover/publicity proposals), photojournalism, fashion, documentary and creative visual storytelling. For any work inquiries, please get in touch via email or phone call. You can find my info in the Contact section. Thank you so much and I look forward to working with you
BIO & EXPERIENCE
I'm a professional Visual Storyteller from Spain, currently in New York for over 8 years. My background includes photography (favorite genres Street Photography, Portraiture and Entertainment) and journalism, with formation in filmmaking (both fiction and documentary).
I am considered one of the pioneers of the Mobile Photography revolution since 2008. One of my cellphone images is on the permanent collection of the High Museum of Art (Atlanta). My photographic work has been additionally showcased in international exhibits, magazines, newspapers, blogs, TV segments and several book covers. My curatorial skills have been sought to be a judge in various international photography competitions. And I've participated as a public speaker on stage events about Visual Storytelling, Photography (street, mobile, social visual media) and Copyright.
I'm happy to have been able to lend my skills to a very diverse group of clients, from entertainment celebrities in theater (24 Hour Broadway Plays) and music (Best Song Oscar winner, singer and actress Marketa Irglova), corporate entrepreneurial businesses (Blue Coat, Gamification Co, Castlight), fashion (BAR III for Macy's, Tory Burch, Clash by Dash) and a diverse array of brands like Beefeater, HP and Panasonic.
I'm the co-founder and instructor (alongside my husband, Anton Kawasaki) of the Mobile Photo Workshop: "The Storytelling Series", a group of successful online workshops on Street Photography, Portraiture and the concept of "Documenting Your World" (through journalistic and documentary techniques), focused on the concept of #Storytelling, and perfecting the use of mobile devices to tell good stories.
